ISTANBUL - Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu will visit neighboring Syria on Tuesday to "deliver a message" from Turkey, Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said.

Turkey, which until this year had close relations with Syria, has grown increasingly vocal in its criticism of Syrian President Bashar Assad's repression of a five-month-old popular uprising.

Tensions were exacerbated in June when more than 10,000 Syrians fled across Turkey's southern border from Syrian forces trying to stamp out the protests. Most are still sheltering in Turkish refugee camps.
